2023 was another year packed of regulatory developments and enforcement action around children’s privacy and online safety in the UK, and protecting children will continue to be a hot topic in 2024 as the Online Safety Act (OSA) comes into force and scrutiny from the Information Commissioner’s Office and Ofcom ramps up.
